Richard Perle v. Paul Krugman: A Debate On The War On Terror
We host a debate between Richard Perle, the man the Washington Post calls the intellectual guru of the hard-line neoconservative movement in foreign policy and one of its fiercest critics, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman.

Perle, a Pentagon adviser and former assistant secretary of defense, calls for the U.S. secession of Saudi oil fields, for regime change in Iran, for the isolation of Syria, possible attacks and a blockade against North Korea and the treatment of France as an enemy.

Perle says Saudi Arabia should be included in the axis of evil but refuses to condemn the Bush family financial ties to Saud Arabia
